Gray Skies over Cerro Castellan
Gray skies blanket the Chihuahuan Desert in Big Bend National Park, near Castolon Village and Visitor Center. The prominent peak is called Cerro Castellan, which means “castle-warden’s hill.” Stretching 3,293 feet above sea level, TSHA calls it “a high stack of volcanic rocks.” Read more from TSHA here.
